time coming that he didn't just antithen-president obama has said many kind things about your father as a leader and as a president, which is why i was interested. one of the things you wrote in your book, given the fact every republican holds up reagan as the standard, the one piece of common ground that unites the whole party, you write in the but ronald reagan couldn't win the republican nomination today. what do you mean by that? >> guest: what i mean by that is i had this conversation with new gingrich alana backend i said it's interesting, the liberals seem to need the ideology to follow. conservatives are always looking for someone to lead them. and if that person isn't there they break into factions and you get all these different factions all over the map. so what i say is if ronald reagan is never present and he throws his hat into the ring in 2008 or for 2012, who would in fact attack him? all you could look at what the his gubernatorial years, raise taxes, an abortion bill, and my god, he was a union leader. so you sit there and think about the ads that would come out aga
